Caleb King is a Ph.D. candidate in marine science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research focus is the cycling of nutrients in cold water coral reefs of the deep Gulf of Mexico. Nutrients such as carbon and nitrogen are crucial for benthic organisms that support higher trophic level organisms such as fish. Caleb conducted his previous research under research advisor Dr. A. Hope Jahren at the University of Hawaii-Manoa.
Caleb King graduated from the University of Mount Union in 2011 with a degree in biology and is working towards his Ph.D. in marine science with a specialization in stable isotope biogeochemistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
